Do you experience severe tooth pain when chewing or biting down? Has your tooth become very sensitive to hot and cold temperatures? If so, the dental pulp in the center of the tooth may be infected or injured. In these cases, our dentists may recommend root canal therapy (endodontic treatment) to restore the health of the tooth and alleviate your painful symptoms. We will make certain that your root canal is as comfortable as possible. Please feel free to contact the nearest Smiles Dental office today to learn more.
